OKay please only respond if you actually have an answer to this that you have tested please.  

So im using JQUery to access the contents of a text file found on my server.

I then tell Jquery to assign that text to a class which i've named "articletwo"

Upon executing that command the text displays in the div where i want it except that JQuery has ommited all the formating found with in the text (i.e spaces in between paragraphs, indents at the start of the paragraphs)

how can Jquery read the information found in this text file while still mainting the formating found within the text file?

####### this is in my header which calls up jquery and tells it to grab the text file##
 
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.djmichaelray.com/dreamchasers/articles/top_three_articles/jquery-1.2.6.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
        $.get("/dreamchasers/headline2.txt", function(data){
                $('.headlinetwo').text(data);
        });
});
$(document).ready(function() {
        $.get("full_article_two.txt", function(data){
        $('.articletwo').innerHTML(data.replace('\n','<br>'));
		});
});
</script>
 
 
##### this is how i call up the script in a class   ##########
 <div class="articletwo"></div>
          </div>

In what I posted I am using the complete url to your files - http://...
in what you posted, you are not doing so. If you are testing on different server, then you will need to use the relative path, just like the ones you posted.
